PHOTOS

NO RESERVE!! Here's a wonderful item that I have received directly from the daughter of the World War One Veteran! This is a Colt U.S. Army Model 1917 double action revolver. A very nice gun but what makes this auction extra special are the items that accompany it. This revolver was the issue sidearm of Private 1st Class Harold J. Everts. PFC Everts was attached to the 305th Field Artillery, Battery E (Be sure to see this link for HISTORY OF THE 305TH FIELD ARTILLERY). He took part in important battles including the Oise-Aisne Offensive (2nd Battle of the Marne) and the Battle of Meuse-Argonne. During one of these battles, he suffered injury by "Gas" as noted on the rear of the wonderful full color poster/document which details his service record. Included with this revolver are numerous photographs which include a photo of Everts as a young child, as an old gentleman, and even one war-time photo which clearly shows him wearing the very revolver offered in this auction! In addition to the photos are five decorations that he received including a Medal received from the French government for his participation in the Battle of Verdun along with the original issue document! This medal is marked with the determined slogan "On Ne Passe Pas!" (They Shall Not Pass!). Both before and after the war, Everts was in Vaudeville and even performed with his wife Jean (one of the Sigfield Follies) in the 1919 Broadway play of "Maytime".

The revolver itself is in very nice, completely original condition. It retains the great majority of the Colt factory brushed blue finish (wire wheel marks on the metal surface are original/correct). All markings are crisp and clear including the military inspector's initials at the left top of the frame and the "UNITED STATES PROPERTY" marking along the underside of the barrel. There is no significant rust or pitting however the barrel shows some scratches where it appears to have been aggressively cleaned at some point. The original grips are in excellent condition and are each properly serial numbered to the revolver. Mechanically excellent with good timing and solid lock-up. The bore shows strong rifling but has light pitting throughout. The original holster is included but is badly deteriorated and dry. A pair of half-moon clips are included. Official records show that this revolver was shipped from the Colt factory on May 20,1918 to Springfield Armory.

This wonderful grouping of items is included with this revolver in the hopes that the memory of PFC Harold Everts and the sacrifices made by so many WWI Vets will live on as they rightly should.
